In The Moon of Red Ponies, Billy Bob Holland discovers that jail cells have revolving doors and the bad guys are back and aching for revenge. Johnny American Horse is a young activist for land preservation and the rights of Native Americans. He is charged with the murder of two mysterious men-who recently tried to kill Johnny, or at least scare him off his political causes. Billy Bob discovers a web of intrigue surrounding the case and its players: Johnny's girlfriend, Amber Finley, seems as reckless as she is defiant; Darrel McComb, a Missoula police detective who is obsessed with Amber; and Seth Masterson, an enigmatic government agent, who makes Billy Bob wonder why Washington is so concerned with an obscure murder case on the fringes of the Bitterroot Mountains. As the dead bodies multiply, Billy Bob is drawn closer to the truth behind Johnny American Horse's arrest-and discovers a greater danger to himself and to his whole family.

"James Lee Burke is at his gripping best in this story of murder and conspiracy against Johnny American Horse, a decorated Native American war veteran and eco-activist whose mad, bad lady love is the beautiful daughter of a U.S. Senator. Lawyer (and former Texas Ranger) Billy Bob Holland finds his whole family under threat when he tries to defend Johnny. Tom Stechschulte is particularly delicious in his portrayal of the Southern-fried nut job, Wyatt Dixon, who once buried Billy Bob's wife alive but is now out of prison and praising the Lord. But Stechschulte's ease with all the demands of this top-notch thriller, from violence, to breathless panic, to love, is brilliant, the sum even greater than a series of masterful character parts. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
